Spurs end hoodoo against Manchester United

6:14 am on 3 October 2012

Tottenham Hotspur has broken a 23-year long hoodoo by beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in football's English Premier League.

Tottenham led 2-0 at half time thanks to goals to Jan Vertonghen and Gareth Bale but United came back with Nani scoring just after the break.

Clint Dempsey's goal then helped Spurs retain their two-goal cushion but that was quickly changed when Shinji Kagawa pulled a goal back for United.

Despite constant pressure from the Red Devils, Spurs held on to win the game 3-2.
